Rolling out an online corporate travel program for a large global company is a complex and challenging project. It required connectivity to several GDS’s including Sabre, Amadeus, Worldspan, Galileo, Travelfusion, Abacus and multiple offline agency systems. It had to cater to the globally diverse corporate travel needs for over 100 countries with different languages, currencies, country specific regulations and policies as well as integration with a number of 3rd party systems. This necessitated adopting test strategies for a continuous integration, security, data, accessibility, PNR synchronization, mobile testing and country roll out readiness. In addition to the global rollout, the project also involved supporting existing business comprising of over 700 clients demanding business continuity. Orbitz for Business is the corporate travel business of Orbitz Worldwide, the leading global online travel company.
Alex Kaluzny, GVP Orbitz Technology says, “Orbitz Worldwide and IBS have enjoyed a successful relationship for 10 years, during which time IBS has continued to demonstrate its team's professionalism, responsiveness and commitment to deliver. The rollout of a corporate travel program for clients with a global footprint is both complex and challenging, with very stringent timelines. We are very pleased that the IBS team has ensured the end product met strict criteria set by us and our client, and this award is a formal recognition of what we have always known about IBS’s ability to successfully deliver mission critical systems. We congratulate the IBS team and wish them every success in the future."
